Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Southern Great Lakes
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
430 AM EDT Fri Mar 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Strong high pressure off the east coast combined with a deep low over
the southern plains will result in rather strong southerly winds and
warmer temperatures across our area today. Gulf moisture will also
flow north into our area today and combine with a couple of low
pressure systems moving northeast from the southern plains to the
Great Lakes resulting in showers in our area tonight through Monday
night.
